William Saliba hasn’t featured for the Gunners since their loss against Sporting CP on the 16th March & Arsenal fans are desperate to know when the Frenchman is likely to return with the trip to the Etihad slowly approaching.
The 21-year old was substituted early in the first half against Sporting after he felt discomfort in his lower back, which has led to the player missing the last four games for Arsenal.
It’s actually been confirmed that the injury that has caused William Saliba to miss the last few games happened at Craven Cottage against Fulham, rather than in the Europa League tie.
After Arsenal’s most recent dropped points against West Ham, every fan is desperate to know when the Frenchman is expected to return.
According to reports, William Saliba is expected back in full first-team training soon and it’s a race against the clock on whether the Frenchman will be available for the trip to the Etihad in nine days time.
The 21-year-old will definitely feature for Arsenal again this season as he is close to a return to action. The question is will Arsenal still have the lead in the title race by the time the Frenchman returns?
Arsenal are assessing Saliba day-by-day and if he returns to training this week, then he’ll likely be available for the title decider at the Etihad in nine days time.
He’s not ruled out yet which is positive news.
